Rush River 06/07/09

DeLorme Map p. 59

What a difference a day makes. The Rush was clear and slow and the trout were ultra-spooky. We started fishing there at 3 pm. There were two hatches at the same time; #14 sulfur duns and #16 blue winged olives. I lost two nice browns, one on a #16 sulfur dun and a #18 parachute BWO.

Dad, on the other hand landed a nice brown on a #16 sulfur dun. He had several strikes by skittering the fly across the surface, imitating the mayflies we were seeing hatch.
